I am planning to acquire a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 from Verizon on Monday. I communicate with employees and clients almost exclusively by text messaging and e-mail. I know g-mail won't be an issue, but am concerned about text messaging. The salesperson didn't instill a lot of trust/confidence on how this will work on the tablet. He said it would be through Google voice, but couldn't explain how it actually works. Someone out there share real-life experience/knowledge with me? I currently use an Android phone and plan to "dumb it down" to just a phone. They (Verizon) tells me to use one number for tablet for text and another for calls on the new, simple phone. Thanks for all your insights and wisdom. Can't afford to make a purchasing error right now.
